Summary
History's mysteries journeys back to the early days of the century to chronicle the attempts of the overlooked aviators and dreamers who were the Wrights' contemporaries. In particular, we'll examine the controversy surrounding the claims of Gustave Whitehead. Many witnesses claimed that they saw his flying machine aloft over Bridgeport, Connecticut on August 14, 1901. Boston and New York newspapers recorded the event, but it has never received official recognition. Then, on January 17, 1902, still nearly two years before Kitty Hawk, Whitehead was airborne again, piloting a kerosene powered monoplane on two flights over Long Island Sound
